It's a bit dated now since I wrote it in 2008 for a Symposium paper
and it was reprinted in CQ VHF magazine ... I wrote a paper about
satellites in EMCOM:

I still have a copy stashed at:

This paper assumes a few things like we have an Eagle Phase IV GEO
satellite. It is written to tie multiple components of a national
level incident command system response up to being able to allow
several incidents to communicate with a unified command at a national
level. While the intrepid ham with HT and go=pack is key to local
emergency response a GEO satellite wasn't what was needed to call in
tornado reports within the county.

Now Clayton can really sleep better after reading this! Probably fall
asleep reading it, but ahem, I digress ...
